Three eerie tales based on actual events are enacted in this film. First, three college students play a prank on a geeky classmate, who is accidentally shot and killed. His vengeful mother forecasts the deaths of the three young men she holds responsible, on 7, 14, and 21 days hence. And, one by one, her grim predictions come true. Next, a ghoulish sound emanates from a mist-shrouded hole in the Earth near where a Missouri boy has lost his dog. The boy's father is lowered into the hole and lets out an agonizing scream! Finally, a senator returning home from a party finds a lost girl on a bridge and learns from her father that she died years earlier!Written by

The film has two narrators. Rod Serling does voice over introductions to the three stories, but the opening and closing narration is by someone else. See more »
The opening of the film has a roll up of text on screen, like Star Wars and many films do. A narrator, not Rod Serling, is reading the words you see on screen, but about halfway through the roll what the narrator is reading and what is on screen are totally different. One or the other must be from a wrong draft of the script. See more »
Listen you well to my word. One by land, two by sky. Look to the heptagon for it is there. Seven times around go the three of you and may your reward be just and true.

Stories made more disturbing by their alleged reality.
While rather cheap-looking and poorly acted, the three stories presented in Encounter With the Unknown can be somewhat frightening considering that they are purportedly true. The first story seems rather incredible and the third may be recognized as a well-known "urban legend", but the intervening story is somehow very believable and easily the most disturbing of the three. This movie is well worth seeing if only for the second story concerning the strange hole which appears in the ground after a heavy rainfall.
